Julian Assange recently tweeted out a series of interesting comments on multicultural identity politics in the US as follows:
America was historically a majority white nation. By opening America’s borders to a tidal wave of Third World mass immigration and the relentless pushing of identity politics for everybody but white people by the Cultural Left, the US white population has been driven to a type of implicit white identity politics too, which is what Trumpism was in part about.
If the same policies are continued, there will be a massive shift to explicit white identitarian movements in America, and in Europe too, since white people will start to realise that – with low fertility rates and massive immigration – they will become minorities in their own nations, and perhaps even hated and persecuted minorities.
As Western nations are turned into multicultural states, modern democracy and politics will cease to exist as we know them. Instead, Western nations will see the Islamisation of their societies, their transformation into dysfunctional, Balkanised areas with rent-seeking nepotistic and mutually hostile ethnic and religious groups fighting for control of the state, and in conflict because of their own mutually-incompatible ethnic/religious interests. In that world, white identitarian politics will be a matter of survival for white people.
Quite possibly, democracy itself will not even survive in an extremely multicultural Europe or America, and Julian Assange pointed to this fact about multicultural Singapore:
This is also why the kind of class-based politics of economic justice – so beloved by the old Labour, Social Democratic, or Democratic Socialist Left – cannot survive in the multicultural society. An effective Social Democratic vision for the Western world – or indeed virtually any society – with left heterodox economic policies entails a high trust and, whether leftists like it or not, a highly homogeneous society.
Now you would think that a sane, reasonable, rational Left would actually want to create a society where its own politics can work, and be opposed to the looming multicultural disaster. But – in reality – most of the Left these days is unwittingly in favour of the disaster happening, even if they don’t consciously understand what the consequences of their policies will be.
If people on the Left wanted to halt and reverse the rise of far-right white identitarian politics, then the pragmatic solution is clear enough: support closed borders and immigration restriction, and work to create a sane Left that is purged of Cultural Leftism and its identity politics. The Left should also support some kind of civilised Nationalism too, with the understanding that nations are based on social cohesion, and that people need national homelands where they are majorities to flourish.
We have already seen that this pragmatic approach to immigration or national identity was supported by socialists of the past (see here, here, here), and there is no reason why we can’t have such a reasonable Left once again. Even John Maynard Keynes, for example, would never have supported the insanity of the modern multicultural Liberal Left and their stances on open borders.
The traditional Leftist concern for the Third World (which I support) can then be based around reform of the international economic institutions, the abolition of Neoliberalism, and development aid using Post Keynesian economics, so that people in the Third World can attain strong economic and social development in their own nations, instead of wanting to come in the millions into ours.
